Okay, but where do you think technology comes from? Scientists, medical researchers, and engineers use many of the things you stated daily, not to mention machinists, inventors, economists, etc. Those geometry formulas, for instance, are the reason why we have the Great Pyramids and understanding of the universe that we do. Area formulas have a plethora of application in daily life and contractors use them all the time in their line of work. Massive structures could not be built without them after all. To further demonstrate, a friend of mine who works in water resources recently asked me to check over his pool design and it involved a ton of geometry and trigonometry. It certainly is real-life to him. We live in a technological world because there is mathematics constantly going on everywhere behind the scenes. Mathematics is needed to keep society and the global economy working and running on schedule. We have the internet and modern computers and military weaponry and weather forecasting and cellphones and space travel and many, many more wonderful things because of of the work of mathematicians. Why people don’t think that’s real-life I’ll never know.
